Three Sheets Soho

Dalston’s Three Sheets is one of the best cocktail joints in London, and according to The World’s 50 Best Bars list, planet earth too.

And now the owners are giving the denizens of Soho a chance to get Sheet-faced too, by opening a sophomore place just off Greek Street.

And what a place it is. You’ll find it by ducking under the tunnel-like passageway underneath the former Pillars Of Hercules pub, and unfolding into the street facing the imposingly monolithic fancy new Ilona Rose House (home to Milk Beach Soho).

Just for a little background, it’s all the work of a pair of siblings (Max & Noel Venning), who earned their stripes at places like 69 Colebrooke Row before opening Three Sheets in Dalston in 2018. And they went from cutting ribbons to popping champagne pretty seamlessly, immediately landing itself the World’s 50 Best Bars list at No.19 and picking up trophies at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards. So it’s understandable that they felt they could go toe-to-toe with Soho’s other hooch-slingers.

Step inside Three Sheets Soho, and you’ll find a simple sleeve of a space lined on one side with a marble bar, and on the other by booth seating, before opening up into a larger seating area at the back. It’s all very chic and moody, with soft teal leather seats and the occasional flash of Art Deco brass.

The cocktail menu operates with the same general principle as the original: three sections (or ‘sheets’) each with three drinks that rotate weekly. Here, they’ll be kept mostly to Soho originals like the Sazzaquack (which involves whiskey and lemon absinthe, and comes served in a glass with a little duck), while still adding in a few of the drinks that made the original so successful, including their sparkling French 75, or their Scottish Coffee, whose dark salted coffee and light shortbread cream come together to create something that looks every inch like a perfect, miniature Guinness.

As an extra little innovation, they’re also serving food here too, thanks to ex-Lyle’s chef & butcher William Blank. He’s rustling up the likes of salt beef sandwiches, croquettes, triple-cooked chips and fresh oysters.

It’s some seriously good Sheet.
